NATIONAL WINDMILL DAY

Saturday, May 12th: Today, the Netherlands is celebrating NATIONAL WINDMILL DAY. About 1,035 of the original Dutch-styled windmills still survive, and about 300 are still used occasionally. These majestic, towering windmills have been designated national monuments by the government.

 

 

Since we probably can’t make it to the Netherlandsto help them celebrate, let’s celebrate in our own American way. If you’re in California, a trip to Solvang, styled after a traditional Danish village may be in order. http://www.solvangusa.com/

In Tolar, Texas, The Windmill Farm Bed & Breakfast boasts over 40 windmills on 26 acres, many of them restored antiques. http://www.thewindmillfarm.com/Tour.htm

Is there anyone out there in other countries with beautiful windmills that they’d like to share with us?
